    Advisories

    Status: Yellow

    The effects of Storm Lorenzo will begin to be felt across Ireland this morning.
    In early October, trees are mostly in full leaf with a large surface area, so even moderate strength winds can bring down weakened trees and/or tree limbs.

    In addition, some trees may be compromised due to saturated soils at the moment, and with more rain likely some disruption due to falling trees/branches is likely. The rain, coupled with falling leaves may block drains and gullies, leading to surface flooding.

    Coastal

    Storm Lorenzo will produce significant swell, high waves and sizeable storm surges. This will lead to wave overtopping, some coastal flooding and damage.

    Surface Flooding

    Saturated soils and the expected heavy rainfall may lead to surface flooding.

    River

    River levels are currently elevated across the country and the rainfall may lead to river flooding in parts of the midlands, west and northwest. River levels will continue to rise after Storm Lorenzo has passed.

    Valid: Thursday 03 October 2019 09:00 to Friday 04 October 2019 06:00
